New tires
 
Well I did it ... I put bfg,s 33 12.5 on my 1988 yj 258 motor 5 speed ... Ok I thank I need to regear it 5 gear is almost useless now it boggs down real bad .... An ideas ?

wrangleryj90 05-21-2013 07:54 PM

What gears in it now? If you don't know how to regear it might be cheaper to find axles with 4.10's

dan high 05-21-2013 08:00 PM

Sorry I don't know I feel like its stock tho ... If that means anything ...would u have a idea of cost ? To put lower gears in it ?

tigerblood 05-21-2013 08:26 PM

around $1k for gears and installation, look for a set of 2.5L yj axles to swap, $150-$350

dan high 05-21-2013 09:02 PM

Ok thanks

dan high 05-21-2013 09:10 PM

Hey this might be a dumb question ...but could I get a rear end from the junk yard out of a smaller motor jeep ? Would that work ?

Yes.
If you find an axle set from a 4 banger YJ you will be geared perfect for your motor and they bolt in as they are the same axles.

Also 94 and 95 axles have stronger joints

You'll want to get front and rear axles together.

Wow, If you couldnt figure out what i meant by that maybe you should take your jeep to someone to have it worked on.

tigerblood 05-22-2013 07:25 AM

Not to mention the only other two people to chime in here referred to "axles" the same way i did, so maybe you should learn some lingo before u go around calling people smartass, dumbass

dan high 05-22-2013 07:37 AM

joeinajeep 05-22-2013 07:43 AM

tigerblood 05-22-2013 07:45 AM

And putting your real name on the internet is just plain stupid, not like identity theft is prevalent or easy these days...

dan high 05-22-2013 07:58 AM

ChicoJeepy 05-22-2013 11:13 AM

Ok. So what is the conversation here? About a loss of 5th gear because of the upgraded 33's?

roadyrob 05-22-2013 11:35 AM

I think dan's high, comes here asking basic questions a few minutes of research would have answered then has a fit when someone tries to help him.

tigerblood 05-22-2013 12:23 PM

This guy reminds me of the WF user "sativa", lmao, who else remembers him? he embarrassed himself so bad with his immaturity (much like dan high) he left with his tail between his legs and never came back. Maybe dan should learn from him.

1st87yj 05-22-2013 01:00 PM

Right! this is not Facebook!!!! were all "friends" here. I happen to be very thankfull for any advice on this forum. And yes, tigerblood has also helped me with my jeep ?'s. He's a very usefully tool here.

wrangleryj90 05-22-2013 01:09 PM

i love tigerblood without him I wouldn't have checked my transfercase and known that it was my problem he told me to check the level of fluid and i would all the problems :) thank you again sir you are the bestest lol

BCDonny 05-22-2013 01:11 PM

some times I think some of the people on here should not own their old jeeps. Anything this old will need some work or help, if you can't do most of the work yourself it will cost you alot more than it is worth and you will never get your money out of it. It is fine if you want to learn but don't be lazy do alot of seaching, google, read other forums etc. Then when you have your basic knowledge ask your questions. Not trying to piss anyone off just my two cents

ChicoJeepy 05-22-2013 04:23 PM

I can say one thing, if I need help (Mainly because I'm not the most knowledgeable person when it comes to fixing a Jeep problem) I'll surely ask someone that knows what he is doing like Tiger Blood and if there is anyway I can return the favor by all means tell me, lol.

Keep it up man. You should write a book about Fixing Jeeps. :thumb:

DILLIGAF 05-22-2013 04:54 PM

If there isnt a tag on the rear differental it still should have numbers on the inside, I also agreed with the axle swap, to regear will cost around $250. with gaskets gears and fluids, not to mention it is still a weak link in the drive train.

dan high 05-24-2013 07:24 PM

Hey thanks for the good info ... I don't live on the net so I have be slow hitn u back

Nanook 05-24-2013 08:30 PM

Dan, also research ford 8.8 swap. A little more money but may be worth it for you.

dan high 05-24-2013 08:48 PM

Ok cool the guy at the off road shop looked at that tag on the rear end an said it did need different rear or axles using the correct lingo
